||College of Select One
I joined Cal. State, LA in 1991. I have taught a wide variety of courses in the department and have greatly enjoyed teaching students with diverse backgrounds. My teaching philosophy is to be at the cutting edge of research in my field and to maximize the learning experience of my students by discussing real-world applications in all of my courses. I am a recipient of the Outstanding Professor Award, 2002-03, California State University, Los Angeles. Prior to joining Cal. State, LA, I taught at State University of New York, Buffalo and held the prestigious ASA/NSF/Census Research Fellowship (1989-90) at the Bureau of the Census, Washington, D. C. .
My teaching interests are in Econometrics, Statistics, International Economics, and Microeconomics.
The main areas of my research are Econometrics (Theoretical and Applied) and Statistics. My work has focused on estimation and inference in limited dependent variable models, duration data models, generalized linear models, and nonlinear regression and simultaneous equation models. My current research deals with robust estimation (especially high-breakdown point estimation), semiparametric estimation of econometric models, resampling techniques, and the stochastic approach to transition data analysis. Results of my research have been published in ECONOMETRIC THEORY, ECONOMETRIC REVIEWS, THE AMERICAN STATISTICIAN, SANKHYA, STATISTICA NEERLANDICA, STATISTICAL PAPERS, ECONOMICS LETTERS, APPLIED ECONOMICS LETTERS, and BULLETIN OF ECONOMIC RESEARCH. I currently serve on the editorial board of the journal, INTERSTAT. I have either served or am serving as a reviewer for several major journals in Econometrics and Statistics. I have also served as a reviewer for grant proposals for the NSF.
